News: New Medieval Literatures (edited in part by CeSMA’s own Wendy Scase) is moving to Boydell & Brewer and JSTOR. Submissions just opened for NML 17: contact the editors http://www.english.ox.ac.uk/node/623.
New Medieval Literatures is an annual of work on medieval textual cultures. Its scope is inclusive of work across the theoretical, archival, philological, and historicist methodologies associated with medieval literary studies. The title announces an interest both in new writing about medieval culture and in new academic writing. As well as featuring challenging new articles, each issue includes an analytical survey by a leading international medievalist of recent work in an emerging or dominant critical discourse. The editors aim to engage with intellectual and cultural pluralism in the Middle Ages and now. Within this generous brief, they recognize only two criteria: excellence and originality.
